Problem with nvidia GeForce FX 5500: resolution
My computer is:
Product Name: Evo D500
nVidia Corporation NV34 [GeForce FX 5500] (rev a1)
I installed the drivers from slackbuilds.org:
I can only get a 1024 x 768 resolution at 69hz. If I go higher the refresh
I set the dpi in xorg.conf:
DisplaySize 270.9 203.2 # mm Resolution 1024 x 768
This should give me 96 x 96, but I get:
xdpyinfo | grep resolution
but I get this resolution (instead of 96 x 96):
resolution: 72x72 dots per inch
This is my old card:
[Vanta/Vanta LT] (rev 15) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
I could set the dpi to 96 x 96 ,
and I could get a resoltion of 1280 x1024 at 85hz
This is my xorg.conf:

All I can say is make sure you have official up-to-date drivers.
I had a problem where I couldn't start X at all; I'd get a "Signal out of range" error from my monitor. I ended up installing the newest nvidia driver in text mode and that sorted it right out, all resolutions and stuff are fine.

have you installed or tried using nvidia-settings to configure your display?
